How to be your own glam squad

Category: fashion and beauty

The sun has risen on the Australian spring summer and for those who love beauty and fashion, with it comes visions of glowing skin, shimmering eyelids, and all the latest fashion staples.


A modern smokey eye
While the smokey eye has been a staple beauty look for years, this summer has seen it take on a modern edge. Choose a brown eyeliner rather than a black one will add a chic warmth to a glam look and will complement every eye colour, like the Maybelline Master Precise Skinny Automatic Pencil Eyeliner from Kmart. It’s also important to choose a pencil with a creamy consistency so you can easily blend it out.

Top tip: be sure to set your eyelid with concealer and translucent powder to protect it from slipping in that balmy weather!

Use a bronzer as an eyeshadow
Next time you’re looking for a blendable eyeshadow why not try a swipe of bronzer on your lids. It gives an effortless glow and you likely already have it in your kit! But, if you don’t, the Basked to Last bronzer from The Body Shop is perfect.

Finish with shimmer
One product that’s bound to light up any look, it would be shimmer. Adding shimmer to your smokey eye should be strategic to pick up the natural light and draw attention to all the right places.

Fill and set those brows
Beautiful, full brows have been on-trend in the beauty space for a while. Take yours to the next level with a small angled brush, wet it slightly before dipping into a brow powder. Be sure you set them with a clear brow gel with the brow and lash gel from The Body Shop.

How to style a sleek low bun
When it comes to a low-maintenance hairstyle for high-glam impact, you can’t go past a sleek low bun, perfect for longevity in that balmy summer air. Using products like hair gel, strong-hold hairspray, and a fine-tooth comb to perfect the look.

Complete the look with edgy, glam fashion
Racerback singlets are a must-have this season and when paired with the right tones and accessories, can really elevate a look. For an edgy, yet minimal glam look, pair a white racerback singlet from City Beach, with a pair of tan or beige pants tailored at the ankles.

Layered with chunky gold accessories like this chain link necklace and some strappy heels, and a crossbody bag, you’ll have a summer-cool look made up of versatile pieces that can easily translate through the seasons!
